We decided to head back to Utah (from New England) and this time we are going to try PowMow and Snowbasin.
We are staying in Eden at this place:
The owner is giving it to us for $125/night :) It's 5 minutes to PM and 20 to SB. We are going to ski 3 days (Weds-Friday). The plan is to ski both mountains and then decide which we liked better for day 3. In the past we have skied DV, PCMR, Canyons, Snowbird, and Alta.
So, if anyone has any tips for us, that would be awesome. Maybe a good bar (we will mostly eat in the condo), best runs (I like powder and bowls, but not too steep and hairy), etc. Here a few questions I have off the bat:
Should we use the shuttle to get up to PM? I read that the road is really steep and treacherous.
Whats the deal with Powder Country and their cat services? I always wanted to do something like that. How tough is that terrain?
Does SB have back-county stuff that isn't too difficult? I can ski anything, but I'm 49 now (skiing my entire life) and don't want to kill myself!
Where is the best nearby grocery and liquor stores?
What do you like better, PM or SB? Why?
Anyone stay at Wolf Creek before? Just wondering how nice the rooms, pool, and hot tub are.
